Went on a beautiful sunny day via the cable car. It has a reasonable menu but if you deviate off salads and pizza be prepared to pay way above what you would in central Tirana. Don't know about wifi but the views by our window seat were amazing. Would definitely recommend for that alone.

Rode the gondola to the top. Very hot in the cable car because it was 95 F outside. Welcome wonderful lunch. We let our guide order for us: tomato salad w cucumber & onions, yogurt w green peppers, little thin lamb chops. Then fruit. Simply the best.
